Special Series on Designing for Disaster | 3 | Katrien Van Der Schueren – Space & Furniture Fabrication

We ALL have more going on at home now. You are not alone, as a matter of fact, I don’t think we’ve all been in more similar circumstances. Our homes were not designed for this. I am talking with some of the best and brightest in design and architecture to get their strategies for making space more efficient.

This episode features Katrien Van Der Shueren. Voila Creative Studio specializes in furniture design and fabrication. You have to work, you still have to be mom, dad, teacher, babysitter, chef, and you still have to figure out how to make your home multi-functional. Even when this disaster is over, we will be looking at how our homes failed to function in the new ways we needed. We are going to look at ways to make sure we are better prepared should it happen again. These ideas are going to make your life a little bit easier. Katrien has some amazing advice regarding approaching your spaces like a movie set. A functioning set that allows you to instantly repurpose spaces for multiple uses and finding dedicated areas for your most important tasks. And a whole lot more.
